Composer Julian Marshall
St Michael s Church, Framlingham
30th April 2016
Julian Marshall s long career as a songwriter and composer spans 70s pop stardom with the bands Marshall Hain, The Flying Lizards and Eye to Eye, through to work as a mature composer of classical forms, including the celebrated choral music publications Out of the Darkness (2009) and The Angel in the Forest (2012) written for some of today s top performers.
As co-founder, and creative director of, the London Song Company, as well as senior lecturer at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, Julian Marshall has nurtured his passion for teaching. However, composition takes a center-stage role in Julian s professional life. It is with great pleasure that he is bringing the new work Dark Disputes and Artful Teasing to St Michael s Church, Framlingham, on 30th April 2016.
And this tour celebrates his newly-signed contract with Novello Publishing.
Often inspired by great poets as a basis for his compositional narrative, this new piece features settings of William Blake s famous Songs of Innocence and Experience.
I had enormous fun writing these pieces, says Julian. Blake is a dream of a poet to set to music, as so many before me have discovered . From Vaughan Williams to Benjamin Britten, Blake s words have been popularly brought to life through music.
Blake s subject matter juxtaposes spiritual quest and romantic ideals with the harsh realities of life an insightful social comment which intrigues Julian.
Providing great scope for compositional exploration, Julian carefully selected fourteen poems and, transformed through sound, the settings feature a broad stylistic and expressive range, rather like you re in Kings College Chapel one minute and then in a kind of surreal Ronnie Scott s the next ! describes the composer.
The premiere performance in Suffolk is not only a wonderful opportunity for residents to experience top caliber music making in the comfort of their home town, but it is also hugely exciting to host the pre-eminent British tenor, James Gilchrist1, who will perform there for the first time.
I love working with Julian, expresses James, who has previously performed his work, his music speaks to people so directly and powerfully.
Dark Disputes and Artful Teasing is written for an intimate ensemble of eight unaccompanied singers, with tenor soloist. James Gilchrist will be joined in performance by Rubythroat, an exciting and innovative vocal group from Trinity Laban College of Music and Dance.
Under the baton of up-and-coming conductor, George Jackson, the performers wonderfully conjure atmospheres envisaged by Julian Marshall.
This promises to be a highly enjoyable evening of music, and you are advised to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Remaining tickets can be bought on the night (doors open 6.45pm, performance starts 7.30pm).
Profits will go to the charity Place 2 Be , who support young people with mental health issues a subject that resonates through the life and works of Blake.

A controversial plan to introduce on-street parking meters to Cromer and Sheringham should be stopped in its tracks.
Plans to bring in on-street parking have been suggested by Norfolk Parking Partnership, which is operated by Norfolk County Council.
A statement has been sent to officers of the Norfolk Parking Partnership Joint Committee setting out the district council s concerns.
John Rest, North Norfolk District Council Cabinet Member for assets said: As Cabinet member I invited ward members in to talk through the county s proposals; this is an issue of great concern to people in our district. At that meeting councillors were keen for all options to be explored to see if the costs of parking enforcement could be reduced or if parking could be enforced more locally.
Our belief is that more time needs to be spent looking into the issue in far more detail and that if this approach had been adopted it would have given a full understanding of the options and opportunities.
At that meeting councillors agreed to ask whether the Norfolk Parking Partnership Joint Committee had fully explored all the options for reducing the costs of parking enforcement before looking to raise additional funds from putting in parking meters.
Judy Oliver, Cabinet Member for Legal Services and Ward Member for Sheringham South added: Any changes to the present car parking enforcement scheme must be carefully considered, evidence based and rational. A scheme that does not meet those criteria would be vulnerable to challenge by way of judicial review.
We are keen to establish a way forward that is reasonable, fair and effective and we will consider all options to achieve that result.
If the present proposal is pushed through we will look to challenge it in court.
Nigel Pearce, Ward Member for Suffield Park, Cromer, added: It feels like the on-street parking proposals would be robbing the North Norfolk coast taking money out of the area and they would not bring any benefit to our two seaside towns.
